HC Deb 15 July 1929 vol 230 cc20-1
21. Mr. EDE

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has received a report on the killing of Thomas Hunt, of South Shields, a ship's cook, in Havana, during the month of June; and what steps have been taken to bring the person or persons responsible to justice?


I have received a report from which it appears that the Cuban police have the matter in hand, and I have no reason to anticipate that they will not pursue the case energetically. I am, however, instructing His Majesty's Minister at Havana to watch the case and to report how the matter progresses.


Will the report be available to hon. Members?


As far as I can see at the moment, there is nothing to prevent us from giving the hon. Member a copy.
